1It’s not about IT or policy, it’s about people. Any government IT leader can be overwhelmed by technical, budgetary, process and compliance requirements that seem insurmountable. But there is almost always at least one experienced ally — usually in government but sometimes on the outside in a nonprofit organization, association or company — who can help you work the traps to achieve your end goal. Finding those people and establishing trust relationships with them are the keys to overcoming almost any bureaucratic hurdle. — Dan Chenok, executive director of the IBM Center for the Business of Government and former branch chief at the Office of Management and Budget 2It’s all about the relationships. — Mary Davie, assistant commissioner for integrated technology services at the General Services Administration 3When you’re in a high- level position, remember that the fondness is for the power of your position, not you. — Frank McDonough, former GSA executive 4You’ve got to be OK with not being the smartest person in the room. — Renee Wynn, NASA CIO 5The Rule of Collaboration: If you want to get any substantive change accomplished, identify your stakeholders and ensure that they are part of the change process. Many people have a veto in government. — Richard Spires, CEO of Learning Tree and former Department of Homeland Security CIO 6The jobs may change, but the faces remain the same. Never needlessly annoy people because despite the size and scope of the federal government, you will run into the same people over and over again as leaders transit through careers that span industry and periodic returns to government service. — David M. Wennergren, executive vice president of the Professional Services Council and former Navy CIO and DOD executive 7Getting IT done is usually 80 percent about people and 20 percent about technology. — David Bray, CIO at the Federal Communications Commission 8Don’t disregard career employees. They usually have the answers to achieve the outcomes you desire. Just ask. — Karen Evans, national director of the U.S. Cyber Challenge and former administrator for e-government and IT at OMB 29 September 30, 2016 FCW.COM 15 ON PEOPLE MILES’ LAW: Where you stand depends on where you sit. — RUFUS MILES, FORMER ASSISTANT SECRETARY FOR ADMINISTRATION AT THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE 0930fcw_014-027.indd 15 9/7/16 9:30 AM
